YHACS is a registered charity (reg no. 1112290) established in 1999 to act as a representative and support organisation for civic and amenity societies across the region.

Our member societies are independent, grass roots groups of citizens who seek to enhance the quality of life in their communities.

Our focus is on place making – helping to improve the built and natural environments through good design, architecture and planning while respecting and heritage.

Although our primary focus is the Yorkshire and Humber region, many of the topics we discuss will be of wider interest and we now welcome membership from other societies outside the Y&H boundary. We also welcome applications from individuals. Find out more about becoming a member on our membership page.
